    Peanuts It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Read-Along Book & Record Illustration Production Cel and Painted Background Setup (Buena Vista/Bill Melendez, 1978). "There he is! There he is! It's the Great Pumpkin!" ...Sorry, Linus, it's only Snoopy as the WWI Flying Ace. Easily the most memorable scene from the fantastically popular Halloween-themed TV special, this image was created for the Read-Along Book & Record set from 1978. Created as a printed line art cel on top of a hand-painted gouache Key Master background on illustration board with lovely, vivid colors. The image area measures 9.5" x 8" with a 1.5" Linus/Sally and a 2" tall Snoopy "rising up out of the pumpkin patch." The board measures 12" x 11". While traditional animation may have many similar images used to make one scene, with book art there is just the one single image... which makes this very rare and desirable. In Fine condition. Don't you want to own the most sincere pumpkin patch in all the world?

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
